The entity is headquartered in Kingston at the Swallowfield Office Park, where more can be learnt. Gallery Curator Anthea McGibbon says the overriding objectives by both hotel and management are
a. exposing and selling artworks by Jamaica artists, b. earning funding for projects of OAaSIS Foundation, while c. enabling Jamaican artists to earn from their skills. As a main benefit to hotel, international visitors have a piece of Jamaica to take home without leaving premises, while they learn of Jamaican artists and culture, and indulge in workshops on the Jamaica arts.
The first travel shows were at Liguanea Club in New Kingston and Couples Swept Away Hotel, guests request services such as sketching, facepainting, studio visits, and actual hands on workshops.
There is a timetable tailored for each hotel wherein visitors and locals can schedule and participate in theoretical and practical workshops.
